Health Help Now is time and location sensitive, which means that whatever time of day or night and wherever the user is, the user can see where their nearest service is and what the opening hours are. Users can find details of services such as their GP practice, nearest pharmacy, walk-in-centre, and minor injuries unit to name a few. The web-app also gives phone numbers to a range of helplines, such as DentaLine, the Dementia Helpline and HopeLineUK, for teenagers with suicidal thoughts.

Kingsnorth Medical Practice Needs You !

 

Our Patient Participation Group is encouraging patients to give their views about how the practice is doing.  They would like to be able to ask the opinions of as many patients as possible and are asking if people would like to provide their email addresses so that we can contact you by email every now and again to ask you a question or two.

 

The NHS is changing and the future is uncertain.

 

Kingnorth Medical Practice is keen to support the Government’s intention of an NHS driven by a focus on quality and outcomes and delivering a more affordable and higher quality NHS.  We believe this requires more investment in good care, closer to home.   We need your support to do this.

 

Our Practice has been at the forefront of delivering you extended services within our locality. These could now be at risk!

 

We need to engage with you to support us in protecting not only what we do now, but to assist us in securing additional services.  If carefully introduced and supported, we have the potential to design more local services which are responsive to the needs of our practice population.

 

We welcome the vision of an NHS built around the principles of shared decision making, including better information and choice, and of “no decision about me without me”.
